Ahab Rex (singer, songwriter, producer and performer) is a Chicago native with Russian blood. Hard yet lyrical, the music of Ahab Rex is sometimes caustic but always surprisingly catchy. His music combines aggressive rock vocals with smooth refrains. It brings to mind a rainy day version of Nirvana or The Ramones with a slight hangover and a dingy shot glass. With influences ranging from Broadcast and Death From Above 1979, to the Isley Brothers, Tom Waits, and Garbage, Ahab Rex is unapologetic rock with killer pop sensibility.
